In 2010, Apple software engineer Gray Powell left the iPhone 4 prototype at a bar in Redwood City, California. At a time when almost every device escapes before the official announcement, the images of the new iPhone appearing online seem curious. But it was a big deal at the time, and the incident even began to affect US police. Now, more than a decade later, pictures of another highly anticipated device have gotten online in almost the same way.
On Saturday night, Android Central shared photos of Google’s long-knit Pixel Watch. The store claims that the pictures you see in this post were obtained from someone who found a smart watch in a restaurant in the USA. The photos confirm that Pixel Watch will have a circular face with minimal display frames. If you look closely, you can see the strap of the wearable device, which attaches directly to the case, with a latch mechanism that looks proprietary to Google and resembles the design that Fitbit uses on its Versa and Sense smart watches (Google acquired this company in 2021) .
The watch has a single button next to the crown and something that looks like a port for a microphone or altimeter. You can see the optical heart rate sensor on the back of the device. Unfortunately, the watch does not exceed its start screen, so there are no photos running Wear OS 3.
According to a report released by Jon Prosser in January, Google will announce Pixel Watch on May 26. The company recently registered a trademark under the name Pixel Watch. Visit Android Central to see more photos of the leaked device.
